UNICHEM’s Mastery in Solving Adhesion Challenges for Coil Coaters: A Legacy of Expertise

Adhesion Challenges for Coil Coaters

In the intricate world of coil coating and metal fabrication, achieving perfect adhesion is both an art and a science. For over five decades, UNICHEM has stood at the forefront of this field, offering unparalleled expertise in troubleshooting adhesion problems. With state-of-the-art research teams and facilities, UNICHEM has carved a niche in resolving some of the most complex adhesion challenges faced by coil coaters and companies utilizing coil-coated metals. This blog delves deep into UNICHEM’s comprehensive approach to tackling these issues, showcasing its legacy and expertise.

Understanding the Adhesion Puzzle

Adhesion problems in coil coating can be multifaceted, often involving issues related to the adhesive itself (adhesive failures), the way the adhesive interacts with the surfaces being bonded (cohesive failures), or even the process conditions under which the adhesion occurs (process-related failures). UNICHEM’s extensive experience allows us to navigate these complexities with precision and innovation.

Adhesive Failures: A Focused Approach

UNICHEM’s expertise in troubleshooting adhesive failures is second to none. Adhesive failures typically involve the adhesive not sticking properly to the substrate. UNICHEM’s approach begins with a thorough analysis of the substrate’s surface characteristics and the adhesive’s formulation. Our team examines factors such as surface treatments, surface energy, cleanliness, and the chemical compatibility of the substrates with the adhesive. By modifying the adhesive formulation or the surface preparation methods, UNICHEM effectively addresses these challenges.

Cohesive Failures: Delving Deeper

Cohesive failures occur within the adhesive layer itself. UNICHEM’s strategy in addressing these issues involves an in-depth analysis of the adhesive’s properties. Our adhesion specialists evaluate factors like the adhesive’s tensile strength, elasticity, and cure profile. Utilizing advanced testing methods, UNICHEM modifies the adhesive formulation to enhance its internal strength, ensuring a cohesive bond that withstands various stresses.

Process-Related Failures: Optimizing Conditions

Process review is a critical aspect of UNICHEM’s troubleshooting methodology. Often, adhesion problems are not due to the adhesive or the substrates but are rooted in the process conditions under which the bonding occurs. UNICHEM’s experts meticulously assess the entire coil coating process, including application techniques, curing conditions, and environmental factors. By optimizing these parameters, UNICHEM ensures that the adhesive performs optimally under the specific conditions of the client’s process.
